An insight into 1930's American business
This is a great classic. Everyone is smoking and drinking in basically every frame of the film and uses words like "see" a lot. I never knew that the "flapper" hair style was still popular for women into the 30's. This film is great to get an insight into the mind-set of the beginnings of super-capitalism that we have today where a very small group of money masters exploit whomever and whatever and maximizing their profits at everyone else's expense is the only goal.
